What, Exactly, is a Poke Bowl?
17 Apr 2019
Perhaps you’ve heard people rave about them, or you’ve seen mouth-watering photos of them, but you're still not exactly sure what a poke bowl is. A poke bowl is similar to a rice bowl — on steroids. Instead of merely containing rice mingled with a few other items, poke bowls are overflowing with a gorgeous array of good-for-you ingredients that look as scrumptious as they taste.
What’s in a Poke Bowl?
Specific ingredients in a poke bowl depend on where you go to get one. Head to Love Roll Sushi + Poke in MacArthur Central and you can customise your bowl with ingredients that range from fresh tuna to teriyaki chicken, from tofu to hot and spicy pork.
Two of the most popular picks on the menu include the salmon poke bowl, with two different salmon options, and the chicken poke bowl, with four delicious chicken options.
The restaurant gives you a six-step plan to fully customise each Hawaiian poke bowl to suit your taste.
Step 1: Pick a base, either rice or salad
Step 2: Grab some goodness, with your choice of veggies
Step 3: Pick two proteins, ranging from raw fish to cooked chicken
Step 4: Pile on toppings
Step 5: Add a dollop of your selected dressing
Step 6: Finish it off with optional extras
Although the above info clears up a lot of mystery surrounding poke bowls, a few lingering questions may remain.
Are Poke Bowls Raw?
Poke bowls can contain raw fish, but no they don’t necessarily have to. It all depends on the ingredients you choose.
Is There Cooked Poke?
